First Aid Kits

Update your first aid kits. Do it TODAY.

I attended a teen youth group sleepover this weekend. Inevitably one of the kids got hurt. The owners of the home brought out their first aid kit - after they found it. The products were terribly outdated. I suppose that they had simply overlooked the need for such a kit because their kids were much older, but even teenagers get hurt sometimes.

There are several pre-assembled kits on the market that aren't too terribly expensive. However, if you want to build your own first aid kit, the Red Cross has an article that can be quite useful. Check it out.

I have a boy scout in the house, so we always have a fully loaded first aid kit.

Which hubby and I completely ignore, 90% of the time.

What is great with teens is you can have them make it themselves. You can go to the dollar store and get them a "box" to put the items in, they can decorate it and then you can add the items. We did that with the kids and to this day The girl has her's and always knows where it is.

I agree that a first aid kit is a matter what age they are.

We have one here in the house but I admit that the supplies need to be replaced :) I'll also do the same when I become a mom. Thanks for sharing :)
